      Hi Richard, I’m wondering if you could possibly contact my mother, Gerry Ferreira, on Pound St (next to the O’Tooles)….she’s been talking about a murder that took place in the 50’s and how it relates to one of the Medfield Restaurants up town. She said, “I don’t want to bother him with such nonsense, but I’ve always wondered if he knows the history about it.” She has some dates and a last name. I tried to do an internet search but didn’t find anything. My parents moved to Medfield in the early 50’s and that’s when she remembers the scuttlebutt. Anyway, just thought it might be something new for you (ha). She’ll be mad at me for contacting you, but I figured it’s the Seniors that have the interesting stories, right? Thanks so much for all that you do for our Medfield History! Sheila Sullivan

      It’s the Colantonio double murder. I know the story but would love to hear more details. I will contact your mom and see if she wants to talk about it.

      I am looking for info on Edward Bent my Great Great Grandfather who became Post Master for Medfield in 1914. He was appointed by president Wilson. I am wondering if the Historical society would have anything on him. I had heard the town shut down the day of his funeral??
